Collaborative Leadership Models Work

Richard Branson’s 10 Favorite Quotes on Collaboration

The model at Virgin exemplifies this welcome transition. “The fundamental driver of our success at Virgin has, and will always be, our people working together,” says Richard Branson. “To be successful in business, and in life, you need to connect and collaborate.”

Branson has many things to say about the importance of collaborative efforts, not only internally, but from company to company as well. On a recent blog, the Virgin mogul cited the following as the quotes on collaboration that inspire him the most.

  1. “No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you’re playing a solo game, you’ll always lose out to a team.” – Reid Hoffman
  2. “Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
  3. “It takes two flints to make a fire.” – Louisa May Alcott
  4. “Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilisation work.” – Vince Lombardi
  5. “The lightning spark of thought generated in the solitary mind awakens its likeness in another mind.” – Thomas Carlyle
  6. “No matter what accomplishments you make, somebody helped you.” – Althea Gibson
  7. “No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it.” – H.E. Luccock
  8. “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” – Isaac Newton
  9. “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” – Henry Ford
  10. “Collaboration has no hierarchy. The Sun collaborates with soil to bring flowers on the earth.” – Amit Ray

Are you ready to share the responsibility for your company’s success? Apparently, the collaborative model works quite well!

HERE IS HELP TO GROW YOUR KINGDOM BUSINESS

One of the organisations I wholeheartedly endorse is Business Greenhouse. This is the fourth video in the series by Wez Hone: it is on building systems in your business and getting out of debt . You need to watch all four. Be blessed.

Wez Hone has a gift and calling from God to help business people grow successful Kingdom businesses. What do I mean by a Kingdom business. It is one where the owner knows God, and whose business and working life is increasingly an outward manifestation of an inward walk of faith, motivated by God’s love. They are people who have been released from striving for success through their own strength. They are building their working life and business on the rock – Psalm 127:1 & Matthew 7:24-27.

Are you are longing to serve God in your professional life and see His Kingdom manifest through you?

Are you yearning to understand more of how to apply God’s word, His Yes and His ways and be led by the Holy Spirit?

Looking to gain a clearer prophetic understanding of our times, its agenda and God’s purposes?

If you are then you need to contact me and let me connect you with the people and organisations which can help you. May I also suggest you buy a copy of my book Build a Kingdom Business – Empowered by the Holy Spirit. It is available as an eBook on Amazon or trade paper back by sending me an email on ron@bakb.com.au – cost AUS$10.00 incl postage in Australia.
